Raye, This Swatch Is For You!

What a difference proper blocking can make. The first time I washed my swatch I did not block it but rather laid it out to dry. Following the suggestions of Raye from FLAK I wet the swatch in plain warm water, rolled it in a towel, then pinned it on my ironing board (since I don't have a blocking board).

15 1/2" x 5"

I think the stitch definition is much better with proper blocking. Thank you Raye.
